-nonsense style. tim ignite her has said he will not stick around for a second term. the united states had s just about a month away from hitting the so-called debt ceiling the point where the government can't pay bills. the next treasury-secretary is key to make sure that doesn't happened but lew's intelligence on is raising red flags. during the last debt ceiling battle, lew clashed with the g.o.p. now he'll face some of those same lawmakers could be a very tough confirmation battle. what did the white house press second say about this. >> jack lew is the chief of staffed has served in a critical role for on this administration as director of the office of management and budget. a well known figure both here at the white house and throughout washington for the past four years. for more, here is jay carney. >> i would simply say that the president is obviously engaged in a process that will lead to decisions on who should fill posted or vacant. as was in the case this week with the defense department and c.i.a. and prior to that the state department, he will make announcements when he has made a
on fiscal issues. on the debt ceiling, it made no sense to risk the full faith and credit of the united states for whatever agenda you have. the business community felt that. the public felt that. and so the fact that they have backed off both -- not only the idea that we should hold debt ceiling hostage, but second that it shouldn't be one for one cuts, you know, boehner used to say that, the house proposal doesn't say that, dollar in cutting for every dollar in raising the debt ceiling. >> would you support a short-term measure to force you to pass a budget? >> i think it should be longer because we don't want to play fiscal cliff every three months. but it's a positive step. on the budget -- >> on the spending reform measures, you never get a clean debt ceiling raise. >> yes, you should. >> that's not a question of whether you should. but historically it's not been the case. >> mitch mcconnell proposed it two years ago and we passed it. but let me say this on the budget. we democrats have always intended to do a budget this year. for two reasons. first, it is not true that we haven't

that the president of the united states is going to nominate a defense secretary who wants to go to war with iran, they've clearly not paid attention the last few years. the reality is to find someone who makes sure our national security is safe. and issues are protected but not simply someone who wants to rattle sabers and go to war. >> no one is saying go to war, but it's the worst negotiating technique in the world to take something completely off of the table and get nothing for it. basically, what you said to the country, whose president said they would like to write israel off the face of the map that we will not respond, we will not be aggressive. >> with all due respect, i don't want to sit there and listen to lecturing about national security from republicans and administration, the previous one that led us into two wars, including one we never had to fight. that being said, let's give chuck hagel his time and chance to defend himself and his case to why he should be secretary of defense. >> there are a lot of democrats who are not ready to support him. keep that in mind. >> i'm going to

and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. >> you know, it looks like republicans are up against another wall. but they're not going to be able to get -- they're not going to be able to get, quite frankly, some things they really want, if they're serious, are important. spending issues. but this is -- he's got them again. >> here's the problem with the republican party being owned by extremists on issues not related to the debt. let me tell you something, the president of the united states, it's laughable that he would talk about republicans not being responsible on debt issues when this president has been in the white house since january the 20th, 2009, and he has yet to do anything significant on social security or medicare. he cut medicare, so he could start a new entitlement program. that's not making medicare more solvent. he hasn't done anything to curb the costs of medical expenses, which he said he was going to do. he did nothing. he struck back room deals with hospitals, big pharma, with special interests and now he's saying republicans are being reckless.

, but republican senators were still obsessed with one detail. united nation ambassador susan rice and her description of the attack on september 16th. tea party senator ron johnson of wisconsin grilled secretary clinton over something she had nothing to do with. >> do you disagree with me that a simple phone call to those evacuees to determine what happened would have ascertained immediately that there was no protest? i mean, that was a piece of information that could have been easily, easily obtained. >> well, but senator -- >> within hours, if not days. >> senator, i, you know, when you're in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going on. >> i realize that's a good excuse. >> number two -- well, no, it's the fact. >> no answer was good enough for senator johnson. eventually secretary clinton had enough. >> we were misled that there was supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that, an assault sprang out of that. and that was easilies a center tained that that was not the fact and the american people could have known that within d
